(LONDON) — Indonesia has issued a terror threat warning, ahead of a somber national anniversary.
Indonesian police are warning of a possible terrorist threat targeting dignitaries planning to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Bali bombings later this week.
While security has been tightened at all entry points to the island, some tourists aren’t bothered.
“We love Bali,” one traveler said. “You know they’re not gonna scare us off.”
“I’m not scared,” said another. “This is actually a good place to come to.”
The local police chief says the threat warning is based on what he calls reports on the movements of “certain individuals.”
More than 200 people were killed in the Oct. 12, 2002, bombings.
